ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On December 11, 1969 the RFD Boys performed together for the first time. The venue was Mr. Floods Party and the band consisted of Dick Dieterle on fiddle, Willard Spencer on banjo, Paul Shapiro on bass, Gary Hussar on mandolin and dobro, and me on guitar. This began a string of regular gigs in Ann Arbor that has yet to end – flowing through LUMS on Plymouth Road (1971-1972) to the Pretzel Bell on East Liberty (1972-1985) and then the Ark (1985- present). Dick, Willard, Paul, and I spent 42 years together on this amazing ride through the complete adult life cycle – our shared experience is beyond words. The band has not been the same since we lost Dick to cancer in 2012 – we, and our fans, miss him deeply. But we have carried on and the joyous experiences have continued, thanks to the addition of the multi-talented David Mosher, who became our fifth member during Dick’s final months on stage, and more recently, my gifted son Dan Roehrig.

This CD was recorded to mark the beginning of our 50th year as a band and combines some very old and some very new, with David and Dan front and center. Thanks to the Ark for their warm embrace over the past 33 years and to our wonderful fans who have kept us relevant. Hope to see you at the Ark in 2019 and beyond as the RFD Boys continue to deliver the bluegrass mail!
